Weight loss and metabolic syndrome Acetic acid which gives vinegar its slightly sharp and sour taste, helps break down starch and sugars, keeping them in the stomach longer, so they are not digested so quickly. Slower digestion helps manage weight loss and metabolic syndrome which is linked to cardiovascular disease and diabetes. Tests have shown that drinking vinegar in conjunction with foods can result in a decrease of blood sugar levels.
Lowering blood pressure Academic research has demonstrated that vinegar can help reduce blood pressure by stimulating the production of adenosine helping blood flow more efficiently through the body.
Helping reduce fatigue One of the causes of tiredness is the accumulation of lactic acid in the body. Acetic acid, a key component of vinegar, helps reduce the amount of lactic acid produced in the body.
Improving calcium absorption Calcium is a major mineral essential for healthy bones and teeth. Research however has shown that on average only 20-30% of calcium consumed is absorbed. Acetic acid, one of the components of vinegar, can help increase the body's absorption of important minerals like calcium. This is particularly important for women who are lactose intolerant.
When is the best to consume? Many of these health benefits only accumulate over time. They are not instantaneous. We recommend you consume a small quantity (around 45-100ml) of Saika Vinegar Drink each day. The best time is in the morning and again in the evening.
Is there a maximum amount I should consume? Everyone's body is different so it depends upon your age, sex and weight. As a guideline for an adult, we recommend a maximum of 50ml of pure vinegar every day. If in any doubt, please take professional medical advice.
